@Lost_N_BIOS Can you please make a bios for p8z77v-deluxe with all updated microcodes like on post #77 + Intel RST -> v13.1.0.2126

#137 RE: [OFFER] ASUS P8Z77-V PRO Bios modded with all the latest modules by PacE 08.01.2020 19:09

Hello all,

First post here, but would like to start by saying, Big thanks for all your efforts for helping lesser skilled people like myselve.
You guys rock!!!

My problem:
I have a P8Z77 V Pro, I7-3770K, running on Samsung sata SSD's , and am hoping to upgrade to NVME m2 WD Black 1TB SN750 by pcix4 adapter.
I am aware my mobo will cut down the PCI-E lane speed to 2* x*8, running a RTX2060 PCI-E slot 1 also I am running a GTX670 on the black lane slot 3 (x1 PCI-E speed)
(for those interested, I play DCS...Frames dropped from about 10 to 15 %)After installing the NVME PCI-E adapter, causing my GPU to run on only 8x lanes instead of 16x

I downloaded and used the bios from #122, flashed by flash-back... but the SSD doesn't appear. The flash seems successful(flashback method)....done 2 flashbacks, *1st time to an older bios version 2103, then used this bios modded2104(post#122). In ASUSSuite I can see the new bios version, however the NVME ssd is not recognized by the mobo nor in windows diskmanagement.

@bfc_xxx - #77 re-pack with v13.1.0.2126 - Link Removed to avoid confusion in future << Null/Brick, do not use @ anyone! >> See post #147 for fixed/confirmed OK BIOS

@PacE - Thanks
Are you sure the NVME drive and adapter are both working, did you test in another board? Or in this board as a spare without BIOS mod?
You should see the NVME in device manager even without a BIOS mod, BIOS mod just lets you boot from it.

What operating system are you using?

Where are you sticking the NVME/Adapter, at middle x16 slot white?

2 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16 or dual x8) *3
1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4 mode, black) << This slot is x4, not x1 as you mentioned. For testing purposes, remove this GTX670 and see if you can then see NVME in Device Manager
2 x PCIe 2.0 x1 *4

*3: PCIe 3.0 speed is supported by Intel® 3rd generation Coreô processors.
*4: The PCIe x1_2 shares bandwidth with SATA6G_E12. SATA6G_E12 is enabled by default for system resource optimization.

@bfc_xxx - Very sorry to hear! Did you USB Flashback it in?
I will check it and let you know if I see anything wrong I checked, and can't see what would be wrong, so I just remade it again (maybe glitch, or bad rebuild etc?)
Link Removed to avoid confusion in future

If this one also fails, I may know the cause (@ replacing EFI RST, will redo other way if this one also fails)

#141 RE: [OFFER] ASUS P8Z77-V PRO Bios modded with all the latest modules by bfc_xxx 10.01.2020 16:02

@Lost_N_Bios Yes i used flashback to flash it.
I used #77 bios to recover the system.
Then i tried the latest mod but this one is not being flashed at all. Flashback reads and stops immediately.

@bfc_xxx - Hmmm! Thanks for info. Sorry about this! I will redo again tonight, I think I know the problem

* edit - @bfc_xxx - Please check, this one orom only first, so we can see if that is the issue or the EFI module, since I always do this one first

Hi!! @Lost_N_BIOS this test bios is flashed by flashback and is working.

edit: forgot to say that I see now that my raid controller is v13.1.0.2126

Something weird I noticed these days and maybe will help others. I have my controller set to RAID. When I flashback the bios, my controller reverts to AHCI and boots normally (the boot disk in just a single drive). When I set again to RAID, windows do not boot and give me a BSOD. What I do to fix this, I leave the controller to AHCI, boot windows, uninstall RST drivers, set to reboot to safe mode minimal with msconfig, restart, go into bios and change to RAID, let windows to boot safe mode and set to boot normally with msconfig, restart. And then windows boot normally with controller set to RAID and install again RST.

I didn't noticed this in the beggining and my RAID 1 broke because 1st disk changed too much.

@bfc_xxx - Thanks, this means the EFI Replacement is what was causing the issue. I will make you another to flash next which is one above + EFI replaced different way.

Sounds like you need to make this registry edit
Enable switching between all IDE/AHCI/RAID modes by changing "Start" Values in these keys to 0 in the registry
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci\Start
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Pciide\Start
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\iaStorV\Start

How I would do BIOS reflash if I was running your setup, would be flash BIOS, boot to BIOS, load optimized defaults save and exit, reboot back to BIOS, enable RAID, save and exit, reboot back to BIOS and move my main non-RAID drive to the first in the hard disk boot priority list

Here, please test both if you don't mind, let me know if both bootable, or one fails etc
Link Removed to avoid confusion in future

Once you confirm which is OK, I will repack info properly named folder for others to download.

#145 RE: [OFFER] ASUS P8Z77-V PRO Bios modded with all the latest modules by bfc_xxx 11.01.2020 19:19

@Lost_N_BIOS Both bios are flashed with flashback and both are bootable. I have now the one in folder 507.

As for the registry the values are as you mention but it doesn't really matter. I just set to boot in safe mode before flashing and then it's working fine.

@Lost_N_BIOS

Sorry I haven't replied for ages, Iíve been learning how to use UBU updating the CPU microcode and viewing the different updated modules on few different modified P8Z77-V Pro biosí floating around the net including yours.

I noticed every couple of months with a modified bios on the Asus P8Z77-V Pro, my PC would Boot to a Black Screen and not POST after a Reboot. The SSD (including different brands) would Security Lock (Freeze Lock) after the Power Reset.

For the SSD to be recognised again and POST on the Asus P8Z77-V Pro, I would have to install the Locked SSD into a different PC, boot into Linux and do Password Unlock and Secure Erase.

I was wondering if anyone has had issues with SSD's Security Locking when using a Modified Bios with updated Disk Controller Modules for the Intel RST SATA EFI & OROMíS above stock version 11.x.x.xxxx on the Asus P8Z77-V Pro running with Windows 10.

Iíve tried

danielstuart14ís bios with Intel EFI & OROM 14.5.0.2241. - Problem Multiple Times

BOLTS4BREKFAST (R4E BIOS 4804 MODDED EFI) with Intel EFI & OROM 15.1.0.2545 - Problem Multiple Times

Asus-P8Z77-V-PRO-2104-NVME-Mod+uCodeUPD bios with Intel EFI & OROM 14.5.0.2241 - Problem Happened Once

It's weird because I used 2 Different Asus P8Z77-V Proís, Different SSD's and the SSD Security Lock will still randomly happen when using a Modified Bios.

Boot settings - CSM enabled & Secure Boot OS Type Other OS

@bfc_xxx - Thanks for report back, good to hear both are OK now! I will remove all previous links so there's no confusion for users trying to find working BIOS later, and here is final (507) repackaged updated BIOS
http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?fil...281578096223598

@hiska - Sorry, I've never heard of this issue, nor seen anyone but you report about it. Maybe something you are doing?? Or maybe due to some instability causing a glitch and then it fails like that?
Or, possibly a problem with V14 roms and this BIOS, that does seem like a very high version to be using on such an older chipset.

#148 RE: [OFFER] ASUS P8Z77-V PRO Bios modded with all the latest modules by DnDa 17.01.2020 10:54

I have P8z77v Pro too. First I tried nvme adapter + disk without flash bios as another (nonsystem) disk.
Windows 7 will display the drive as a PCI device until the update for windows 7 is installed. After that Windows shows disk name in device tree.

Newer windows probably can use immediately.
Adaper worked in my lower (black) and middle pcie slots (white) . (I didn't deal with speed)

BIOS from page 2 post 16 works well. I use Windows EZ Flash and replace bios file under the EZ flash running.

Thank you very match.

I tried to modify the bios myself. I use Asus SLIC bios / because of Win7 activation / but I lost a modified CAP file.
I used Universal BIOS Backup ToolKit 2.0 to download the bios to slic.ROM
In MM_tool I modified it slic.rom to slicnvme.rom but it is wrong or EZ flash did not flash.


Please can you check if I modified the bios well (Asus P8z77v Pro 2104) ?.

http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?fil...223669677299200

Or advise how to convert rom to capsule bios?

Could you please modify the BIOS for p8z77 in the 2104 so as is on page 6 post 77? Except CPU microcode /
I don't want slowdown/ with Asus Slic

Thank you !
Sorry for my english.

1. Is there a way to verify that the flashing process was successful on my P8Z77-V DELUXE?
In my case it's not showing my customized splash-screen anymore, but in case it's the default one I don't know a way to figure out if it's been modified or not?

2. Also, is there a way to patch out the god mode mentioned in this video?



3. Can you explain how you got to this table?

Thanks, that is plenty of info as long as you are sure.
BIOS already has EFI RST 11.5.0.1582 and there is no 11.5.0.1582 orom, you'll need to pick some other version from this page - AHCI & RAID ROM Modules
Either 11.2 or a newer 11.x RSTe

Zitat
Recommended Intel RAID ROM versions:
Intel RST RAID ROM v11.2.0.1527 = best choice for Intel ICH7R/8R/9R/10R Chipset RAID systems (matching RAID driver: Intel RST v11.2.0.1006), best performant ROM for all RAID0 users
Intel RST(e) RAID ROM v12.9.0.2006 = good choice for Intel 5- and 6-Series Chipset RAID systems (matching RAID driver: Intel RST(e) v12.9.4.1000)
Intel RST(e) RAID ROM v13.1.0.2126 = good choice for Intel 7-Series Chipset RAID systems (matching RAID driver: Intel RST(e) v13.1.0.1058)
Intel RST(e) RAID ROM v13.2.2.2224 = good choice for Intel 8- or 9-Series Chipset RAID systems (matching RAID drivers: Intel RST(e) v13.2.x.xxxx)
Intel RST(e) RAID ROM v14.8.2.2397 = alternative option for Intel 8- and 9-Series Chipset RAID systems, good choice for Intel 100-Series Chipset RAID Systems (matching RAID drivers: Intel RST(e) v14.8.x.xxxx)
Intel RST(e) RAID ROM v15.5.1.3017 = good choice for Intel 100-/200-Series Chipset RAID Systems (matching RAID drivers: Intel RST(e) v15.5.x.xxxx)
Intel RST(e) RAID ROM v17.x.x.xxxx = probably best option for Intel 300-Series Chipset RAID Systems (matching RAID drivers: Intel RST v17 platform ones)

#150 RE: [OFFER] ASUS P8Z77-V PRO/non-PRO/DELUXE BIOSes modded with all the latest modules by Skeptic 27.01.2020 09:57

Hi, I apologize for not knowing where to post my question. I have a P8Z77-I DELUXE (mini itx) with American Megatrends Inc. Bios version 1201.
Would this p8z77-v modified bios work with my board? I currently have a pair of SS830 ssd in raid 0 as boot drive.

I am searching for a modified Bios that would enable bios support for booting from my Samsung 970 Evo M.2 PCIE NVME
I am using a nice PCIe NVMe M-2 adapter card (with heatsink runs 37c) in the only v3.x16 video slot. Windows drive manager sees the drive in W7 (bios doesn't) after installing samsung drivers, and it hits fast advertised speeds as a scratch drive, but I will need a bios mod, to *boot* from current cloned W7 installation, or install a new W10 onto it.

Is there a reliable already modified AMI bios available that would allow me to boot from the NVMe? Can somebody please point me in the right direction?

This MB seems like it was built with fancy "EASY" flashing and reflashing and overclocking features, (asus back in 2012) but all of that is wasted on me. I am clueless.
I am hoping i can figure out how to flash it without bricking it. I have no ability to make the modifications without an entire crash course, so hoping one of you experienced folks will be kind enough to help.
Thanks for advise on where to ask or look -- cheers
